I'm using Microsoft Visual Studio with OpenGL/C++.

I've been searching the web for days on tutorials, but there doesn't seem to be any that still work / that I can follow and get working.

I'm just trying to display a Cube for now, but can't seem to read in the correct values T_T.

I'm currently reading in Colours, Vertices, and Indices from my own created file, and drawing Polygons to make a cube, but I can't seem to expand this to the format of a .obj file.

Here's what I currently have:

int read_file (const string fileName)

{

ifstream inFile;

inFile.open(fileName.c_str());

inFile >> NUM_VERTS;

vertices = new point3D[NUM_VERTS];

for (int i=0; i < NUM_VERTS; i++)

{

inFile >> vertices[i].x;

inFile >> vertices[i].y;

inFile >> vertices[i].z;

}

inFile >> NUM_COL;

colours = new colour[NUM_COL];

for (int i=0; i < NUM_COL; i++)

{

inFile >> colours[i].r;

inFile >> colours[i].g;

inFile >> colours[i].b;

}

inFile >> NUM_POLY;

indices = new polygon[NUM_POLY];

for (int i=0; i < NUM_POLY; i++)

{

inFile >> indices[i].a;

inFile >> indices[i].b;

inFile >> indices[i].c;

}

inFile.close();

return 0;

}

void drawCube()

{

for (int i = 0; i < NUM_POLY; i++)

{

glColor3f(colours[i].r, colours[i].g, colours[i].b);

drawPolygon(indices[i].a, indices[i].b, indices[i].c);

}

}

void drawPolygon(int a, int b, int c)

{

glBegin(GL_TRIANGLES);

glVertex3fv(&vertices[a].x); //Top

glVertex3fv(&vertices[B].x); //Bottom left

glVertex3fv(&vertices[c].x); //Bottomg right

glEnd();

}

Any help would be massively appreciated, as I'm really confused.
